"Complications following mesh insertion"
Posted by Marnie (as ),
My story started in 2006 with a hysterectomy & anterior mesh repair for prolapse. Within weeks the Mesh had eroded into my vagina & I was bleeding, had an infection & was in a lot of pain.
I was sent back to hospital where the Mesh was removed & another inserted. 2 years later I had to have a posterior repair carried out, again Mesh repair. 2 years later my anterior Mesh eroded into my vagina again, the surgeon removed as much of the Mesh as he could access but this left me with nerve damage to my bladder.
For the last 2 years my mobility has been deteriorating & now I can only walk for short distances before having to stop because of pain in my buttock & sacrum. I have attended every physio. possible, had hip x-ray & scan & there's nothing wrong with my bones.
My hips are turning inwards as if the nerve supply to the muscles is affected. I wonder if this is as a result of my posterior repair, which by the way has eroded vaginally!
